Just wondering, will a diagnosis of gestational diabetes always mean an early induction or will they let you go to term?
I'm only 15 weeks, but already diagnosed, and levels are stable so far.

I went to 41+5 with ds before I was induced as I was able to control the levels with diet

If you are diet controlled, you will be allowed to continue until you go into labour naturally. If you are controlled by insulin you will be induced. If you are 15 weeks along you still have a long road to go. My levels were good but then as my hormones changed my resistance increased. I have been placed on a mere 8 units of insulin before bed to help control my fasting sugar levels as these are the only I had trouble with and as a result I will be induced at 39 weeks

I'm having a c section, booked for when I'm 39+5. I'm on 4 units of insulin with dinner and 12 before bed. I think as long as your levels are controlled you should be allowed to go to term, that depends on your Dr of course.

I think it's down to hospital policy.

I was on insulin at night. One dr I saw was happy for me to go to 40 weeks then I was going to be Induced. However the next week, I saw another dr (public hospital) who then booked me in 3 days later at 39 weeks.
So like pp said it is hospital policy plus depends on the dr you see.

You can refuse induction. You don't 'have' to be induced. It's usually hospital policy whether or not they recommend induction.
I was on insulin for my gd and was to be induced at 38wks. I was tossing up refusing induction but ended up making the decision to be induced at 38+6 as the risk to baby was too high for my liking. My induction went perfectly and my baby had no side effects from the gd.

I was diet controlled and induced at 38+5 weeks because bub was too big. It ended up in a c sect as my body wasn't ready and he ended up being 50th percentile. So average!
